Pay it Forward Commitment

There are no upfront costs or tuition for the program. Each participant’s costs are in part funded by our generous community of funders and partners—including Google, Robin Hood, Blackstone, and other tech companies that believe in our community mission.

We have a ‘Pay It Forward Commitment’ where all participants commit to giving a percentage of future earnings back to C4Q to help pay for the next class. As part of ‘Pay it Forward’ we ask that all participants to commit to paying 12% of their gross annual salaries for three years upon getting a tech job. We want to ensure that your brother, sister, cousin, neighbor, or friend has the same opportunity to transform their lives.

Your success is our success — only participants who have gotten tech jobs will be expected to contribute.
